A request from Swee’Pea and TheMonk

Yesterday, Swee’Pea and TheMonk came home more excited than I’ve every seen them come home from school. What where they so excited about? It turns out that they attended a school assembly that turned them into little salespeople for a fundraiser for their school. They were particularly focused on the prize list that that detailed what they could win if they sold 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 75… It was here that they stopped. They learned that if they sold 75 items they could win a Runaway Alarm Clock. They needed this clock. They were determined to sell 75 items. They even conspired to sell as one student rather than split up the sales. It was decided.

But one problem. They don’t know 75 people and Grandmother was probably only good for 5 items, tops. I told them I knew where they could find a larger audience. They were intrigued. This led them to their very first contribution on this blog. I give you Swee’Pea and TheMonk:

If you would like to support their endeavors, you can visit the All American Fund Raising website. Leave a comment below and I will send the school name and TheMonk’s name to enter at the end of your order. Or, if you are FB friends with me, that information is currently on my FB page.

Items start as little as $8.00 and you can get everything from Christmas stuff to chocolates to magazines to gluten-free foods. I’d love for Swee’Pea and TheMonk to blow this out of the water. Will you help? Thank you!


  1. The “Have a nice day” part was just the cherry on the sundae! So sweet. I’ll go have a look and see if there’s anything I can get to help.

  10. I have been a lurker for a while and just had to unlurk for this cause – every kid should have a Runaway Alarm Clock. And, I think it is so sweet that they will share – twins are like that (sometimes). :) Please send me the information so I can place an order.

  11. Ah yes, the grandchildren’s fund raisers. I’m so familiar with these. This one I can’t resist. Please order two yummy boxes of chocolates from us and donate them to someone at your “Y”.
